There are some spots on my headliner and rear deck that have come unglued, the spots that were still glued were very hard to remove. What glue did they use?

There is a spray on glue that you can get from auto supply stores, and craft stores.

The glue used on the headliners is called Contact Cement or Contact Glue. You can buy it in a can and brush it on or buy it in a spray can. The spray can is easier to use but does not work that great. The brush on stuff is the way to go (and cheaper too!) Here are a couple of pics from when I redid my headliner:

The headliner board with everything removed off of it. (this can only be done correctly with the headliner out of the car.

Half the headliner material glued in, getting ready to glue on the other half:

Dap Weldwood Orginal Contact cement. I have to glue the three velcoro pads on the back and the fabric on the plastic panels next to the rear deck. Would a quart cover?:beer::help::sadwavey:;):barf::nervous::slap ::Owned::squint::thumbsup::p:huh::tear::idea::uh:: uh::

Check out 3M upholstery adhesive. I used it in my Taurus to put some door trim back in place.

Be very careful of overspray though. This stuff is EXTREMELY sticky.
